Inspiring to read as we head into summertime and want to help my kids reclaim their focus and help us not depend on screens to entertain even though it will be annoyingly HOT outside.

Best book I’ve read for a long time. Well researched into what is distracting us from the real issues in our lives and from genuinely engaging in the world. Discusses ADHD, technology, climate change and how we can collectively campaign to make a significant change for the better. I’m sure I’ll go back and read this again soon.

I found a factual error in the book - Googleplex is in Mountain View, not Palo Alto, as the author claims. So I'm not sure about any of the other claims the book makes. I would have given this book 1 star. However, when zooming out a little, the points the author makes sound plausible and are worth pondering over, so 2 stars.

Compelling and scary, not all the information here is new to me but it was nice to have it all framed in one place. I also think the fact that so many of the ideas that were described in this book are now more ubiquitously understood in just two years is amazing. I also learned about cruel optimism, which I knew was a thing but never heard that terminology used before.

How do I explain that this is a must read for everyone one of us in the tech dystopia of 2024. Our attention is so key to any kind of growth and survival, this is a book that is worthy of your time.
